Huntington Beach, California – November 7, 2023 – Huntington Beach Hospital, a member of the Prime Healthcare Foundation, has achieved numerous accolades for clinical excellence, according to research released by Healthgrades.

Among Huntington Beach Hospital’s distinctions are Specialty Excellence Awards placing the hospital in the top 10 percent of the nation for Patient Safety and five-star ratings for Hip Fracture Treatment. These achievements place Huntington Beach Hospital in the upper echelon of hospitals nationally for specialty care and reflect the hospital’s commitment to consistently delivering the best care possible.

“Healthgrades congratulates Huntington Beach Hospital for being a national leader and demonstrating a deep commitment to providing high quality care to all patients,” said Brad Bowman, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Data Science at Healthgrades. “Your dedication, expertise, and tireless efforts have not only set you apart but have also positively impacted the lives of countless patients.”

“This achievement is a testament to the dedication and expertise of our physicians, nurses and the entire healthcare team at Huntington Beach Hospital,” says Dan Brothman, Chief Executive Officer at Huntington Beach Hospital. “We are deeply grateful to each and every member of our healthcare family for their contributions that continue to make Huntington Beach Hospital a destination for quality patient care.”

In addition to Healthgrades, Huntington Beach Hospital was awarded the 2023 Get with the Guidelines Heart Failure Gold Plus and the Stroke Silver Plus awards from the American Heart Association. These awards recognize the hospital’s commitment to ensuring patients receive the most appropriate treatment leading to more lives saved and reduced disability.

Healthgrades evaluates hospitals solely on clinical outcomes: risk-adjusted mortality and complications. By focusing on what matters most, patient outcomes, Healthgrades ratings provide critical feedback for both patients and hospitals. By offering easy access to objective performance measures, Healthgrades gives consumers the information they need to find a hospital that excels in providing the care they need. And, by shining a light on strengths and weaknesses, Healthgrades ratings help direct hospitals to opportunities for clinical improvement.  The 2024 hospital assessment evaluated patient mortality and complication rates for 35 common conditions and procedures at approximately 4,500 hospitals nationwide to identify the top performers.

The 2024 Healthgrades analysis revealed that the variation in performance among hospitals continues to widen, making it increasingly important to seek care at top-rated programs.  From 2020 through 2022, if all hospitals as a group performed similarly to five-star hospitals, on average, 215,667 lives could potentially have been saved, and 149,521 patients could have avoided potential complications.*
